The streets of Portland were the scene of chaos and violence on Saturday after two right-wing protests.
Online postings indicate two right-wing demonstrations are scheduled for Saturday: one involving the Proud Boys, a fraternal organization known for street fighting, and another organized by conservative activist Haley Adams and the 'HimToo Movement,'" the Oregonian reported. "Counterprotesters, including supporters of Rose City Antifa, are planning to gather in opposition."
